KUDOS TO PARENTS AND OUR PREP TEAM

Many thanks to all the parents who worked with their children on religious education these last few months! Though it has not been easy juggling work schedules and the responsibilities of online classes for regular education, many of our families have made religious education a priority and are learning about our faith together.

A special thank you to our wonderful volunteer catechists who have gone “over and above” to make sure that families were supported in religious education during this time. They spent countless hours learning how to navigate Edmodo, our online learning platform, how to post lessons and create videos, and in addition, they recently made phone calls to check in on families.
